After October

Jump to navigation Jump to search

After October by English playwright, actor, theatre director and screenwriter Rodney Ackland (1908-1991) [1]. After October, a Bohemian tale set in 1930s Hampstead, is a marvellous portrait of a chaotic household living life on credit, with their scatty actress mother, her daughters dreaming of success in art and dance, a depressive lodger and a gallery of individual hangers on.
